By the Grace of G‑d
Rosh Chodesh Elul, 5736 [August 27, 1976]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greeting and Blessing:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your letters of the 17th of Menachem Av. I will remember you in prayer for the fulfillment of your heart's desires for good in the matters about which you write.

As I have mentioned it before to you, strengthening Bitochon in G‑d, in addition to this being a basic tenet of our Torah, also increases and speeds G‑d's blessing in all needs. At the same time, true Bitochon minimizes, and indeed dispels, all anxieties and worries.

With regard to matters relating to the community, Chinuch, etc., you should discuss them with Askonim Yirei Shomayim, who are familiar with the local situation - as I have also advised you this in the past.

Wishing you and yours a Kesivo vaChasimo Tovo,

With blessing,
M. Schneerson
